Yup, blu-ray all the way... Toshiba is gonna have to cut ties with their productions... and the cards have been on the table for awhile now. Sony sells their diod plants to Toshiba to better mass produce the chip sets for ps3, without incurring the cost themselves.. the same diodes that go into blu-ray are also being made there.

Toshiba is going to back out of the format war regardless. They're working hand and foot with sony and people don't even see it.

Meh, I think what's more likely to happen is a single, standard joint format.

It'll come in purple boxes.

Mark my words.
